Savannah State College has established The Major Richard R. 
Wright Award of Excellence whereby alumni, members of the com- 
munity, and corporations are chosen by a jury appointed by the President 
to be honored for outstanding repute as leaders in their respective fields 
of endeavor. Nominations for the honor are made by the alumni, the 
student body, and the faculty. The Award commemorates Major Richard 
R. Wright, the first President of Savannah State College. 

To qualify to receive this Award, an alumnus, a member of the com- 
munity, or a corporation must have worked constructively to change the 
pulse of the community for the better. The parties cited must have used 
innovative approaches in opening new avenues of awareness for the in- 
dividual and society as a whole. The honorees must have utilized 
scholarly means which address the needs of the public and attempt to 
improve the human condition. Recipients of this Award must be eclectic 
thinkers who have proven themselves able to transcend the false pride 
that tempers self-aggrandizement. 

The Major Richard R. Wright Award of Excellence will not be given 
injudiciously. Those parties that receive the Award will be noted for their 
expertise in social, educational, and civic arenas. 

The College will recognize recipients of the Major Richard R. Wright 
Award of Excellence at Commencement Convocations. 

Since the Board of Regents does not allow any of the state colleges to 
confer honorary degrees, this Award is given by Savannah State College 
in lieu of them.

Presentations by Norman Benedict Elmore, M. A. 
Assistant Professor of English, Savannah State College 

Citations by Prince Albert Jackson, Jr., Ph.D., President 
Savannah State College 

Assistant Professor Elmore 

WESTLEY W. LAW, a distinguished alumnus of Savannah State College, a beloved and respected champion 
of the rights of the common man, began his service to the City of Savannah and tin 1 State of Georgia im- 
mediately after he received the baccalaureate degree in Natural Sciences from Savannah State College in 
1948. Mr. Law is a paragon among civil rights leaders and a dynamic model of the cosmic man. One could 
not adequately describe Westley W. Law without mentioning his commitment to the ideals and goals of the 
NAACP, an organization that he has supported and continues to support with unwavering faith and unrelent- 
ing fervor. Long before mass demonstrations and Supreme Court decisions abolished the sinister abyss of 
segregation, Westley W. Law incessantly reminded both Blacks and Whites that no American would be free 
until all Americans shared the fruits of truth, liberty, justice, and peace. 



Mr. President, I present to you Mr. Westley W. Law, President of the Savannah Branch of the NAACP 
and former President of the Georgia Conference of the NAACP to receive the Richard R. Wright Award of 
Excellence. He, like Socrates, has proved that the examined life is worth living. Mr. Law. 

President Jackson 

WESTLEY W. LAW, scholarly citizen, brilliant leader of men, compassionate counselor and teacher of 
the down-trodden, your commitment to the dignity of the common man has enhanced the Savannah com- 
munity and exalted the pulse of the larger American society. By the authority vested in me as President of 
Savannah State College, I am sincerely honored to award you the Major Richard R. Wright Award of Ex- 
cellence. 

Assistant Professor Elmore 

EUGENE H. GADSDEN, alumnus of Savannah State College, Lincoln University (Pennsylvania), and the 
School of Law of the North Carolina Central University, has been associated for the major portion of his adult 
life with the dispatch of justice and the eloquent practice of law. His professional accomplishments are 
matched only by his singular dedication to the public domain. Years before they became the hue and cry, he 
was a tenacious apostle of Legal Aid, a staunch defender of the NAACP, and a bulwark of the Democratic 
Party. Mr. Gadsden's devotion to social action is crystallized by his memberships in Omega Psi Phi Fraternity, 
Incorporated and the Sigma Phi Phi Fraternity. 

Mr. President, Sterling Brown has written: 
'"One thing they cannot prohibit — 
The strong men . . . coming on 
The strong men gittin ' stronger ..." 

I present a strong man, Attorney Eugene H. Gadsden, to receive the Major Richard R. Wright Award of 
Excellence. Attorney Gadsden. 

President Jackson 

EUGENE H. GADSDEN, you have lived your life according to the highest ideals of your profession and 
you have served as a beacon of hope for those who thought that life itself was devoid of light. You have prac- 
ticed and dispatched the law most judiciously. You have demonstrated in your own provocative style the 
biblical axiom: "He who humbles himself shall be exalted . . ." In recognition of your service to the Savannah 
community, and to mankind in general, I am singularly pleased to award you the Major Richard R Wright 
Award of Excellence.

JOYFUL, JOYFUL, WE ADORE THEE 



Joyful, joyful, we adore Thee 

God of glory, Lord of love; 

Hearts unfold like flowers before Thee, 

Opening to the sun above. 

Melt the clouds of sin and sadness, 

Drive the dark of doubt away; 

Giver of immortal gladness, 

Fill us with the light of day. 

All Thy works with joy surround Thee, 
Earth and heaven reflect Thy rays, 
Stars find angels sing around Thee, 
Center of unbroken praise. 
Field and forest, vale and mountain, 
Flowery meadow, flashing sea, 
Chanting bird and flowing fountain, 
Call us to rejoice in Thee. 

Thou art giving and forgiving, 
Ever blessing, ever blest, 
Well-spring of the joy of living, 
Ocean depth of happy rest! 
Thou our Father, Christ our Brother, 
All who live in love are Thine; 
Teach us how to love each other, 
Lift us to the Joy divine. 

Mortals, join the happy chorus 
Which the morning stars began; 
Father love is reigning o'er us, 
Brother love binds man to man. 
Ever singing, march we onward, 
Victors in the midst of strife, 
Joyful music leads us Sunward, 
In the triumph song of life. 

Amen. 



SAVANNAH STATE COLLEGE HYMN 

Let us give thanks and praise to Thee, 
To our Alma Mater, S.S.C. 
Thine honor, pride, and eminence, 
We raise in prayerful reverence. 

Guide us still from day to day, 
Be Thou mindful lest we lose our way; 
Help us know that life, short or long, 
Means unceasing work for weak and strong. 

REFRAIN 

Where Savannah meets the sea, 

Where grassy plains and palms abound, 

Where the flow'rs are gems of loveliness, 

There S.S.C. is found. 

We adore each beauteous scene and hall, 

Our all we pledge to Thee! 

In our hearts we'll build a shrine for Thee. 

We hail Thee, S.S.C. 

— J. Randolph Fisher

ACADEMIC COSTUMES 

Modern academic dress has evolved from a type of apparel prescribed by English Medieval 
Universities to distinguish their schools from the lay person in dress at a time when everybody 
wore robes or gowns. When American colleges and universities desired to adopt some suitable 
system of academic apparel a half century ago it seemed best to agree on some definite system 
which all might follow. Accordingly, this attire has consisted of the cap, the gown, and the hood, 
the latter two now differing according to the degree the wearer has received. 

The modern cap, in academic dress has the same design for all degrees; black and square- 
shaped with a tassel hanging from the center. However, the color of the tassel usually differentiates 
the field of study for which the degree was granted, the gold tassel being worn by doctors or by 
presidents of colleges and universities; but it may be added that the black tassel is correct for 
all degrees. 

The gown, unlike the cap, differs appreciably in design according to the degree conferred 
on the wearer. The gown for the bachelor's degree has pointed sleeves. It is designed to be worn 
closed. The gown for the master's degree, worn open or closed has an oblong sleeve, open at the 
wrist, like the others. The sleeve base hangs down in the traditional manner. The rear part 
of its oblong shape is square cut and the front part has an arc cut away. The doctor's gown, worn 
open or closed, has long sleeves faced with velvet; three bars of velvet are midway the sleeves. 
The trimmings of the doctor's gown may be black or the color associated with the field of study. 

The hood, while not an article of dress, is, however, the most distinctive feature of the aca- 
demic attire. It is a black, crow-shaped badge or adornment with an oval opening and worn down 
the back. It enables one to quickly determine not only the degree held by the wearer but also the 
college or university from which he is graduated. The colors lining the hood and the size and 
shape of the hood make this distinction. The bachelor's and master's hoods are three feet and 
three and a half feet in length, respectively; the doctor's hood is four feet in length and is made 
with a wide panel. Hoods may be worn for only those degrees actually held by the wearers. 

Members of the governing body of a college or university, and they only, whatever their 
degrees may be, are entitled to wear doctor's gowns (with black velvet), but their hoods may 
be only those of degrees actually held by the wearers or those especially prescribed for them 
by the institution. 

In some colleges and universities, it is customary for the president, chancellor, or chief officer 
to wear a costume similar to that worn by the head of a foreign university. 

The chief marshal may wear a specially designed costume approved by the institution. 

For all academic purposes, including trimmings of doctor's gowns, edging of hoods, and 
tassels of caps, the color associated with different subjects as prescribed by the revised American 
Intercollegiate Code is as follows: 

Agriculture Maise 

Arts, Letters, Humanities White 

Business Drab 

Economics Copper 

Education Light Blue 

Law Purple 

Library Science Lemon 

Music Pink 

Oratory — (Speech) Silver Gray 

Philosophy Dark Blue 

Physical Education Sage Green 

Science Golden Yellow 

Theology Scarlet 

At Savannah State College, the lining of the hood has an orange chevron on a blue back- 
ground to represent school colors. A faculty member wears the color of his alma mater.
